Apple is updating its wireless AirPods and is working on its own brand of high-quality over-ear headphones which could arrive later this year, an analyst said.

According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the most famous analyst with KGI Securities when it comes to Apple, the Cupertino-headquartered giant is set to debut a branded high-end, over-ear headphone with an `all new` design to add to its growing audio accessory line-up.

It seems like the AirPods are a success and the company wants to capitalize on this market. The new headphones would feature the same convenience of the AirPods, but with better sound quality. Apple could ship them at some point in Q4 2018, just in time for the holiday season.

Some users also can’t use the AirPods because of the shape of their ears. This new pair of headphones should solve this issue. Headphones are usually more expensive than wireless earbuds, so this new accessory could cost even more than $159.

Kuo has heard that Apple is working with metal injection molding company SZS. That’s probably how KGI managed to learn about this project. It’s unclear how different they’re going to be from Beats-branded wireless headphones

“A specific launch timeline was not provided, but Kuo believes the device is unlikely to debut prior to the fourth quarter of 2018,” Apple Insider reported on Sunday.

The headphones will likely feature wireless connectivity and the company is reportedly aiming to deliver a device that boasts the convenience of AirPods but with better acoustic qualities.

Similar to Apple`s Beats brand, the over-ear headphones could be more expensive than the in-ear AirPods.

The tech giant is looking to pack high quality audio components that would boost performance, according to Kuo, but those parts come at a price.

However, the expected design language of the device is not yet known.
